Tabletop Role-Playing Games Industry comes together to support NHS Charities Together in #RoleForCharity
The Role Play Haven has teamed up with a whole host of UK publishers to raise money for NHS Charities Together through a bespoke charity t-shirt fundraiser which launches on Wednesday 2nd February at 2:00pm.
The pressure on our National Health Service continues to be relentless, but NHS Charities Together help provide the extra support and services needed to care for staff, patients, and improve health in our communities. Working with a network of over 230 NHS Charities, they listen to teams on the ground and invest in projects that help the NHS go further than what would otherwise be possible through standard Government funding alone.
The Role Play Haven t-shirt campaign will help them to fund things like counselling and the creation of outdoor spaces to improve staff and patient wellbeing, new technology and specialist equipment to enhance patient care, the training and equipping of thousands of emergency response volunteers to help save lives in local communities and research into long-term health conditions – such as long-Covid and many other conditions.
The #RoleForCharity t-shirt features bespoke artwork which has been created exclusively for this campaign by the veteran TTRPG artist Jason Juta.
As part of the purchase, supporters will also receive a one-off gift from each of The Role Play Haven’s sponsors in the form of PDFs, discount coupons and physical books. They estimate this bundle value to be over £100 and sponsors include; Brittannia Game Designs Ltd, EN Publishing, Handiwork Games, Magnum Opus Press, Modiphius Entertainment, Nightfall Games, Red Scar and Son of Oak.
T-shirts can be purchased here from 02.02.2022 at 2pm for £18, with a minimum of £8 per t-shirt being donated to NHS Charities Together.
The campaign will be a two-week pre-order to maximise fundraising and fulfilment will be completed by GMS Hobby Game Logistics.
